Seasonal jobs in the Garden - Early Winter

Garden jobs during late November and December

42

Early winter
Now is the time for taking stock and re-planning. New beds and paths can be made and garden carpentry carried out. If the weather permits, continue major digging, tidying up of beds and ground preparation. Complete any reconstruction of the rock garden, and refill window boxes with fresh soil.

TREES AND SHRUBS
Plant deciduous trees and shrubs, provided the soil is neither waterlogged nor frozen. Stake tall specimens and standards.
If new arrivals cannot be planted immediately, leave them in their wrapping in a cool, frost-free place, first making sure their roots are moist. If bad weather persists, heel them in temporarily on sheltered ground until conditions improve.
Re-firm soil that may have loosened in frost around the bases of newly planted trees and shrubs, and established plants exposed to wind.
If such creatures as rabbits and squirrels are present, protect the trunks of young trees and shrubs with plastic tree bandages or wire netting to a height of about 2ft.
Carry out any necessary pruning – such as thinning summer-flowering shrubs, cutting back invasive roots and overhanging branches and general shaping – in mild spells.

CLIMBERS
Check that all supports and ties are firm and renew any loose or damaged fastenings.

ROSES
Plant new bushes or transplant established ones when ground and weather conditions allow.
Spray with tar-oil to protect plants against pests and diseases.

HERBACEOUS PERENNIALS
Finish tidying beds and firm soil around plants to prevent frost damage to roots and crowns.
Place cloches over Helleborus niger to lengthen stems and keep flowers clean for indoor decoration.

ALPINES
Sow slow-germinating seeds and those that need shilling to germinate – that is, most alpine plants including gentiana acaulis, Viola biflora and Androsace – in cold frames.

BULBS, CORMS AND TUBERS
Check stored tender bulbs, corms and tubers for rot; cut out affected parts and dust the rest with fungicide. Destroy badly affected specimens.

ANNUALS AND BIENNIALS
Plan the summer planting schemes, select and send off seed catalogue orders.
Protect autumn-sown sweet peas in frames by covering glass with matting during hard frosts.

LAWNS
Lay new turf if ground conditions are suitable.
Avoid walking on the lawn after heavy frosts – it can damage the grass.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Dig empty borders, remove weeds between established plants, and apply a light, ground-covering mulch during mild spells.
